Faculty of Engineering
4 years, daily courses
In Tîrgu-Mureş, the engineering higher education has a tradition of 30 years. The members of the teaching and administrative staff from the Faculty of Engineering, as well as the adequate teaching equipment, offer updated theoretical and practical specialized knowledge for two large domains and seven ultimate engineering specializations.
Contemporary engineers have to produce what is needed, when is needed, of adequate quality and with the lowest costs. They are the ones who must conceive competitive products as well as flexible companies with a fast response to the market. As a consequence, there is a lot engineers have to do, and the time invested and the effort needed to obtain the engineering training will be completely fruitful: sooner or later.
The educational offer and human resources
The whole educational process of the faculty complies with the curricula approved by the Ministry of Education, Research, Youth, and Sports and with updated syllabi - in the same line with those used by other similar faculties from home and abroad.
At the Faculty of Engineering, in the first and second year, students study fundamental engineering disciplines specific for their field and complementary disciplines. In the third and fourth years students benefit from specialization training, paralleled by a second part of complementary disciplines.
The disciplines which ensure the fundamental training are mandatory, and the specialization training is achieved in modules of optional disciplines. Moreover, the student has the opportunity of studying a number of elective disciplines, including pedagogical ones. There are an important number of published courses, collections of problems and manuals for works or projects to support the educational process.
The evaluation of the professional training is done throughout the whole year of study, culminating with oral or written exams, which are scheduled in the exam sessions at the end of each semester. The academic engineering studies are finalized with a degree exam, consisting of assessing the fundamental engineering and specialization knowledge, and defending a diploma project, which can be followed by post-graduate studies or master degrees.
The engineering specializations undertaken by the students of the Faculty of Engineering are similar and compatible with the domains and specializations recognized in the European Union. The teaching staff and equipment of the Faculty of Engineering provides our undergraduates and graduates with good technical, economic and management knowledge to become competitive and flexible on the labour market.
There are examples of engineering graduates who have had extremely interesting career evolutions in national and international companies and institutions, proof of the quality of the teaching/learning process of the Faculty of Engineering.
We can mention the most important laboratories of the Faculty of Engineering: Computerized Graphics; Descriptive Geometry and Technical Design; Computer-Based Design; Work Devices; Resistance of Materials; Mechanical Vibrations; Materials Study; Mechanisms and Machine Parts; Hydro-Pneumatic Activities; Chemistry; Physics; Electric Systems; Electric Equipments; Safety Electric Systems; Electric Nets; Use of Electric Energy; The Mechanics of Fluids and Hydraulic Machines; Quality Technical Control; Electric Conductors; Power Electronics; Machine-Tools and Instruments; The Bases for Surfaces Generating; The Technology of Cold Pressing; The Technology of Machine Building; Non-Conventional Technologies; Thermo-Treatments; Tribology; Sensors and Translators; Electro-Technique; Electronics; Mechatronics; Simulated Company; Electronic Microscopy; The Engineering of Automatic Regulation; Operational Systems; Computer Networks; Automation Equipment; Distributed Systems; Data Bases, etc.
Educational partnership and scientific research
The Faculty of Engineering has important and long lasting inter-university relations on national and international levels. The national relations, with all traditional universities from the country, are mostly didactic-methodological and scientific.
The international collaboration of our faculty is achieved through the programs initiated by the European Union, such as Tempus, Phare, Socrates / LLP - Erasmus, Leonardo, etc. These programs refer to professors' and students' mobilities, building compatibility for disciplines, assessing criteria and methods, as well as mutual professional recognition. In 1999 the Faculty of Engineering received the recognition and accreditation from the European Federation of National Engineering Associations (EFNEA) settled in Brussels. This approval enables the graduates of the Faculty of Engineering to apply for getting the title of European Engineer, EURING and the consequent professional rights.
The scientific research, done within the Faculty of Engineering, constitutes an inseparable part of the teaching staff's activity. It is realized in the academic specific way, that is research contracts based on grants with CNCS, CNFIS, MCT, the Romanian Academy, economic agents, publication of monographies, articles and surveys in scientific journals from home and abroad. To this we can add the doctoral theses researched by young members of the teaching staff.
The Faculty of Engineering includes two research centres recognized by CNCS in the 2001 competition, as follows: Advanced Technologies for Projects and Gear Processing and the Management of Energy and Electro-Technologies.
